apt install sudo
addgroup <username> sudo

After installing sudo you'll need to logout and login again for group membership to take effect. When this is done, we can proceed to install Docker. This has been automated by a shell-script from docker.com.

sudo apt install curl
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh
